Organization: DeWitt County Wildflower Association (Cuero, TX)
The DeWitt County Wildflower Association is a non-profit civic group which promotes the enjoyment and knowledge of wildflowers. DeWitt County's unique location in south-central Texas provides the perfect environment for over 1000 different species of native wildflowers which bloom throughout the year. Each of the native flowering plants has been catalogued by common name (e.g. "Bluebonnet"), scientific name (Lupinus texensis), and family name (Legume). Since many different species are blooming in April, the DeWitt County Wildflower Association invites the public to come and enjoy the beauty of "DeWitt County Lanes and Byways" during the month. This is the ONLY month-long exhibit in the State of Texas!
